Every year a range of hopeful companies launch new products and solutions at the SXSW event in the US, hoping to be the next big thing. Some successes have come from SXSW, for example, FourSquare. We’ve been notified of a company who are planning to launch a new mapping solution (designed for mobile phones) that they say “will change the way you think about your location”. We’ve not much information to go on at the moment (nor whether it will be a US-only service), and there’s a very good chance it will launch as a limited beta (although we understand there’s already anapplication due for release to coincide with the launch), but if it does release, and is worthy of further mention, then we’ll provide more information next week.
They provided an additional quote: “it is going to (hopefully) blow away all other mapping apps on your phone… particularly the ol’ google maps.”
Very interesting, and more news next week as it becomes available…
